Jaden Smith celebrated his birthday recently. The actor and singer was born on July 8, 1998, to Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, and he turned 22 years old this year. Naturally, birthday wishes for him started pouring in from across the internet.
Jaden Smith Gets Birthday Wishes From Dad Will Smith
His father Will Smith was among those wishing him well. He posted a hilarious photo of himself with Jaden Smith on Instagram. The photo shows Will Smith enthusiastically explaining something, while Jaden Smith has a stern yet confused expression in the background.
The caption on the post clearly shows that Will saw the humour in the photo as well. “Happy Birthday, J-Diggy! You were clearly questioning my parenting abilities in this pic. Whatever I was trying to get you to do must’ve turned out okay. Hahahahaha I Love You, Man,” he wrote.
Will Smith Had Previously Talked About Parenting
On a more serious note, Will Smith had recently expressed his opinions on parenthood. On the Father’s Day episode of Red Table Talk, his wife’s Facebook Watch talk show, he talked about the birth of his first son, Trey.
“I brought him home, we put him in the bassinet, it was like stark terror. I’m totally responsible for this life. I couldn’t stop going and checking. I just cried so hard. It makes me teary right now,” he said.
